Ed Barclay, owner of The Franchise Services Group represents a franchise review group that may be of interest to veterans thinking about a franchise opportunity. He submitted the following;

First and foremost, we would like to sincerely thank you for your service. Franchise Services Group’s goal is to partner with you to help you identify franchise or business opportunities that meet your personal, professional, financial and lifestyle goals. Before starting your own business, it is extremely important to take a slow, methodical approach with your research and align yourself with professionals.

As you exit military life, and begin your journey back to civilian life, we can provide the needed support and guidance to you. The biggest advantage of buying a franchise is that it is inherently less risky than starting a new business from scratch and many offer substantial veteran discounts. Most established franchise concepts are proven business models that have a verifiable track record of success that generally can be easily validated during your investigation of the opportunity. Franchise companies typically provide comprehensive training and support before and after you open your business, and many provide “back office” and marketing alternatives. Always thoroughly investigate any franchise or business opportunity, obtain all appropriate disclosure documents available, and seek expert consultation prior to making any investment decisions.
